"Your car is not your freedom, it's your responsibility"

Traffic was halted at a crossroads in Schaarbeek for 218 seconds to remember 218 victims of road accidents in Brussels. So far this year, 218 people died or sustained heavy injuries on Brussels roads. This number is up on the year, and many Flemish commuters are using Brussels roads every weekday. Speaking in this video are Hilde, the victim of a motor accident, and Annemie, who lost a daughter in a road accident.
